Bitcoin is the first and most popular cryptocurrency originally proposed in 2008 and subsequently created in 2009 by the pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto. A native asset of the Bitcoin blockchain, it is the world’s first currency that is inherently free from the control of central banks. By design, the underlying network is censorship-resistant, permissionless and peer-to-peer with a scarce and programmable native currency (BTC). Bitcoin remains the global cryptocurrency market leader by price and total market value.
Satoshi Nakamoto mined the first Bitcoin block, known as the genesis block, on January 3rd, 2009. Nine days later, the first transaction with bitcoin was completed when Satoshi Nakamoto sent bitcoin to Hal Finney, the creator of the world’s first RPoW (reusable proof-of-work system). The first known instance of bitcoin being used to pay for a good or service happened more than a year later on May 22nd, 2010 when Laszlo Hanyecz paid 10,000 BTC (worth approximately $41 at the time) for two large pizzas. Ten months after the famous pizza transaction, bitcoin’s usage as a medium of exchange began to skyrocket as it was adopted by dark web users who wished to shield their identity while making purchases on the dark web. After gaining popularity on the dark web, it took six years for bitcoin to eventually reach mainstream popularity when its price surged to $20,000 per coin in December of 2017. Today, it is estimated that roughly 1% of the world’s population either owns or has previously owned bitcoin.
The Bitcoin network consists of nodes that can validate transactions, organize them into blocks, and solve the hashing function to mine a block and receive the block reward. All other nodes on the network will check the work of the miner that mined the block to ensure that it was legitimate. On the Bitcoin blockchain, each block is 1 mb in size and holds an average of 3,500 transactions per block. Each of these blocks are mined every ten minutes. To make sure that block mining times are consistent, the Bitcoin protocol has difficulty adjustments. This makes mining a block easier or harder based on the time it is currently taking. If blocks are being mined to quickly, the hashing equation becomes more difficult to solve. If blocks are being mined to slowly, the hashing equation will become easier to solve. The difficulty is defined as the number of zeros that must appear at the beginning of the resulting hash. More difficult solutions have more zeros at the beginning. This implies that the odds of finding a result with more zeros requires more hashes. There are approximately 18.5 million bitcoin that have been mined and can be included in the circulating supply. The remaining 2.5 million BTC will be mined from now until the year 2140. The block reward paid to miners will be cut in half every four years until there are on bitcoin left. This will happen roughly 120 years from now. The Bitcoin protocol completed its third halving on May 11th, 2020. At that time, the block reward given to miners was reduced from 12.5 BTC per block to 6.25 BTC per block.
